One of the country's most well-known evangelical Christians, Franklin Graham, said Pete Buttigieg, an openly gay 2020 presidential candidate, should "repent."

... Graham called homosexuality a "sin" and "something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized," in a tweet Wednesday....

Looks to me as if Mr Graham (and his fellow Christians) are the ones politicizing homosexuality.

So Franklin is now deciding sins for God?

Doesn't his Book define that as blasphemy?

Is Franklin coming out against poly-cotton shirts and haircuts as well, or he doing the Cafeteria Christian two-step?

Meanwhile, Graham has been silent on the guy who regularly breaks half the Commandments.

Because he doesn't want to "politicize" things, I'm sure.

Franklin prefers lying traitorous criminals like Trump, who is President, over someone who loves his neighbor... a lot.

Me thinks Fraud Graham enjoys his share of "man sausage" from time to time.
These guys always turn out to be hypocrites and closeted homosexuals.

People like Graham don't realize they are a dying breed:

Laura Krantz @laurakrantzC (Covering higher education [upheaval] for the Boston Globe.)

Half the students at the Jeff Sessions speech at Amherst College just got up and walked out, holding a rainbow flag.

Sessions replied "I got to say, that was better than last week at the University of Minnesota." Said that was more disruptive.

He's one to talk. The Graham family has been screwing their supporters in the ass for generations.

"At the very least we should be able to establish that God does not have a political party," the South Bend, Indiana, mayor said at the town hall.

Cthulhu does not require repentance, sir. In fact, quite the opposite.

The politics of the Christian right have nothing to do with teachings of Jesus Christ.

Graham is directly disobeying Christ's edicts on proselytizing in public.

Franklin Graham is among the lowest forms of human scum.

Mayor Pete would be welcome in my home any time, Franklin Graham not so much. These ridiculous preachers who have zero morals but who criticize others make me sick, I truly feel sorry for all the dopes who listen to them and give them money.

I invite Graham to pucker up and smooch my sciatic.

Would it be a sin if I applauded were Graham to be thrown off church roof?

I sometimes feel that we might do far better with a little madness in our mountains.

Cretins claim that "The Word" is eternal, but how many councils convene to determine what those specific Words are? Every couple years the Bible is re-evaluated, so is the inerrant needing a new font or is there something to be replaced, redacted and tribalized?

Homosexuality existed before Bibles and will continue far beyond.. Well, for at least another decade on this world.

Also, I don't know anything about Pete and his relationships. Nothing has been said publicly yet..

This is his husband:

Chasten Buttigieg @Chas10Buttigieg (Teacher, First Gent South Bend, @petebuttigieg's husband, @firstdogsSB dad, theater education advocate)

In my circle of friends they're sailors, doctors, nurses, teachers, remarkable parents, musicians, and small business owners. So proud to know you and I stand by your side today and every day. #LesbianDayOfVisibility

Yeah, that's really rich coming from Franklin Graham. Has he repented yet for supporting Roy Moore?

Well, we just have another version of the Bible. One being the KJV, King James version and the new PBV version, Pete Buttedger Version.

A gay male on campus said to a Christian evangelist at UCLA, who called homosexual behavior a sin, "At least you are showing me love by speaking what you honesty believe is the truth to me! The Christians in my dorm either don't really believe Christianity is true or they don't love me enough to speak the truth don't me!"

Is that young man right or wrong?
Expound please.

Almost INEVITABLE!
This is the WORST argument people advocating for homosexuality use:
that those opposing homosexual behavior are secretly closeted gays (often with graphic descriptions of the perversions)!

They attempt to be apologists for the behavior by using homosexuality as a label and a club to beat the objectors to gay behavior with, in a not-that-subtle way acknowledging the bad of the very behavior.

I think it probably is mostly because folks like aborted monson are drinking their own kool aid after using the term "homophobia" or "homophobic" to describe those who sin sexually with the same gender, like a 1950s housewife flails and screams about a spider in her kitchen.
The truth is all the Christians I know either used to be gay, have a gay parent, a gay kid, or a gay cousin. We aren't afraid, intimidated or ignorant of the facts of the gay lifestyle in 2019, and we aren't "phobic." Therefore labeling us as gay just comes off as a desperate attempt to slander someone while losing the argument.

At least one study showed that homophobic and anti-gay people showed increased physical arousal when viewing gay porn. So, the argument is accurate.

The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile -------- to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.

"Homophobic" men.

Isn't there another option for people that think it is a sin, just as extramarital hetero sexual activity is, than "homophobic?"

Like we run away from every romantic comedy, whether it's "Will and Grace" or "Friends?"

That's gay...
Errrr, -----.
Emmmmmm, "strange."

Errrrybody needs to repent.
I sure needed to.

I'm glad Franklin Graham isn't going into the closet so many wish him into who are ghey apologists. I'm glad he's showing he lives Buttigieg enough to speak the truth in love to him.

Actually it was anyone who showed "negative affect toward homosexuals." But i wouldn't expect a moron like you to read anything.

He's wrong.

Whether silent of vocal a Chreestian activist railing against homosexuality is wrong.

Chreestians need to go back to their belief in a personal relationship with God and leave everybody else the f--- alone. Either that or start actually acting Christ like before opening their fat, sinful mouths.

Ummmm no. Predicting the likelihood of gay bashers being gay themselves isn't saying being gay is bad. It's saying that people go to extreme lengths to cover up those nagging feelings in their subconscious because our stone age goat herder myth-based society demands it.

Religion is 90% scourge 10% benefit for humanity.
